Naugatuck and Connecticut state police are looking for a man appearing to be a police officer who sexually assaulted a woman.

The attack happened Wednesday around Noon near Gorman St. and Lewis St. According to state police, a brown or tan colored Ford Crown Victoria with blue/red flashing lights on the dashboard pulled over the woman's Jeep.

The woman told police when she got out of the car the man sexually assaulted her.

"The suspect was described as wearing dark navy blue pants, navy blue polo shirt with breast pocket on left side, above the pocket words were embroidered in an arch 'Naugatuck' and straight across below it was 'police'," state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said in a statement. The attacker was also wearing a utility belt with a flash light, a pouch that appeared to be handcuffs, white sneakers and black frame sunglasses with multi colored lenses.

"The description provided by the victim does not match or resemble any member of the Naugatuck Police Department," Lt. Vance said. "The vehicle is not a Naugatuck Police Vehicle."

The man police are looking for is a white male approximately 6' to 6' 2", in his late 20's early 30's and with an average build. He has blond curly hair that was swept to the side, hairy blond arms, and a big bulbous nose.

Anyone who may have seen either of the vehicles or who may have information on the case is asked to call state police at 203-393-4200 or 1-800-842-0200. State police say all calls will be kept confidential.
